Magis gives you more choices—for indoors and out, for the lounge, the café, the patio, the lobby, the classroom. By combining craft with industrial process Magis products deliver beyond expectations. It makes sense, since Magis means “more than” in Latin. While delivering more, Magis uses less—material and energy—a commitment Magis shares with Herman Miller. A belief in authored design is another; Magis works with top designers from around the world, such as Michael Young who, in 2001, designed a fun and very functional doghouse. Check out all the over 200 Magis products GR Shop has to offer.

- Ron Arad
Arad was born in Tel Aviv. He attended the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem between 1971–73 and the Architectural Association in London from 1974–79. In 1989, with Caroline Thorman, he founded Arad Associates, an architecture and design firm, in London. His brother is the violist and educator Atar Arad.
Arad's career as a designer began with the Rover chair. He was Head of Design Products Department at the Royal College of Art from 1997 to 2009. Arad designed in 1994 the Bookworm bookcase, which was still produced in 2011 by the Italian company Kartell.
Arad's work has been described as "scary", considering its "macho concrete and cut metal; tense sheets of tempered steel and guillotine edges".
In 2005, Arad designed chandeliers for the Swarovski crystal company which if one has the number, can display text messages that are sent to it by incorporating light-emitting diodes (LEDs) operated by SMS text messages. He also has had tables that climb walls instead of being centered in the room. Arad's works are often worked into distinctive biomorphic shapes and are created from his medium of choice, steel. He made plans to expand his studio in 2008.
